The 200 acres of glorious parkland surrounding Mellerstain House, one of Scotland's grandest stately homes, designed and built by William and Robert Adam, provide a wonderful setting for these three delightful cottages. Visitors are welcome to roam the grounds including the fabulous Italian-style terraced gardens which command panoramic views over the lake to the distant Cheviot Hills. The scenic and historic attractions of the Border country are all close at hand and the beaches of Berwick and Holy Island are also easily accessible. Kelso (6 miles) offers shops, inns and restaurants and is home of Floors Castle and the famous Kelso Horse Races, whilst Edinburgh, with its magnificent castle, museums, galleries and excellent shopping, is only a 35 mile drive. Fly fishing can be arranged locally, several golf courses are nearby and shops and pubs are just 3.5 miles away. Beautifully appointed and very comfortable, these three properties offer a unique holiday opportunity. West Lodge, is a charming 18th-century stone cottage enjoying its own garden with splendid views towards the Cheviots.

Visitor Reviews


" The standard of accommodation was superb. Exceptionally comfortable and spacious. Beautiful setting. The whole family, from a 4 year old to elderly parents (and the dog!) had a great time and all loved the cottage and the grounds. "

Mrs M Lanarkshire

" What a fantastic place to stay, had the grounds to ourselves so lots of snow fun was had by all, including the dogs. Nothing in very easy reach during the winter months and the roads around the estate are near impossible unless you drive a 4 x 4. "

Mrs J County Durham

" This cottage is excellent value for money in the stunning and peaceful location of the grounds of the Mellerstain estate. A lovely cottage with a modern interior that was perfect for our family holiday. A great base for exploring the Scottish Borders and nearby coast. "

Mr R S Yorks

" This cottage is in the quiet courtyard of a beautiful manor house and offers stunning walks through the grounds. The lovely market town of Kelso is a short drive away offering great shopping and dining, whilst Edinburgh is only 45 mins away. Anyone seeking peace, quiet, and a chance to 'recharge the batteries' in a stunning country setting should seriously consider staying here. "

Mr B Oxfordshire

" Location was wonderful, to have the grounds of the lovely Mellerstain Estate as our own 'garden' during our stay made us feel very privileged. We were too noisy to see the red squirrels and deer, but saw the highland cattle and heard the hoots of the owls at night. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable and all 6 humans plus Alfie the border terrier had a great time. Loads to do and see within a short drive. Edinburgh is only around 40 miles away, and the lovely coast of both Scotland and Northumberland in easy reach. The tour of the big house was also well worth doing and Angus and all the guides were most informative. We sampled lots of local produce from the butchers and bakers in surrounding villages and farmers market in Kelso and of course fish and chips in Eyemouth! Highly recommended!! "

Mrs W Warwickshire

" Beautiful setting, ideal for people with a dog, very friendly ground staff and admin staff within Mellerstain house, would heartily recommend it for anyone looking for a relaxing break. Many places of interest in the area. Excellent comfortable beds. "

Mrs I

" Very comfortable and spacious accommodation furnished to a very high standard. Offered all the comforts of home and much more. "

Mr H Essex

" Great walks in grounds for dogs. "

Mrs M

" Beautiful grounds, with delightful walks, excellent for children if supervised. Plenty to occupy guests locally, but also convenient (about 40 mins) for Edinburgh, Alnwick, Holy Island etc. The cottage is very good, en suite bathroom to each bedroom and a four poster bed in the master bedroom. "
